Wood Damaging Pests
The second-largest city in the Midwest, Columbus, OH, has a mix of new houses and older dwellings. Both types of homes in Ohio can suffer infestations from damaging pests. Some local wood destroying insects are:
Once carpenter ants enter a house, they set up colonies inside wood walls, flooring, furniture or wall void areas. These insects do not eat timber, but they do bore into it to create nests. Columbus homeowners who find sawdust or small holes in lumber should check for a carpenter ant infestation.
Termite infestations are tough to detect since the pests live either in the ground or in timber. The tiny insects eat wood, and large colonies can weaken the integrity of a home. Subterranean termites nest in soil and use mud tubes to move over stone or concrete. These tunnels and the presence of winged termite swarmers are often the first sign of a problem in Ohio homes.
Biting & Stinging Pests
Biting and stinging insects in Columbus can quickly put a damper on summer activities like camping and hiking. Bothersome outdoor pests in Ohio include:
During spring and summer months in Columbus, mosquitoes breed in stagnant pools and other bodies of water. Homeowners can reduce their numbers by draining water from flowerpots or other containers that hold water. Mosquito bites result in raised, itchy bumps, and the pests transmit diseases such as West Nile virus.
These stinging insects make paper nests inside hollow trees, rodent burrows, or below ground in Ohio yards. Yellow jackets are hostile when disturbed and can sting multiple times. People who have allergic reactions to yellow jacket venom may need medical care following stings.
Our Orkin Man calls to be sure I know about appointments. He is very good at calling. I’m very satisfied with the service. Keep up the good work.
I’ve had Orkin for 30 years and am very satisfied. You always come out and resolve every issue.
I’m very happy and very satisfied. I can’t think of anything to improve the service. It’s what I expect.
This is in regards to my Orkin Man. I recently moved and got married. I had my service with Orkin transferred to my husband’s home since we both had the same trouble with picnic ants. During the first visit to my home, I was amazed to learn exactly where the ants were coming from. He sprayed and the ant problem disappeared. Now he has been servicing my husband’s home and in two months has our picnic ant problem under control, if not gone. He really knows his bugs and how to get rid of them.
The termites came; then came Orkin. They did some drilling; then some corkin’. The treatment made the termites cease. In this house, we now have peace.
The scheduling has gotten even better now. It’s very personable, prompt, and quickly takes care of situations.
